Starting and Takeoff
Shortly after flight starts on ground with master battery onEstimate of current fuel as a percentage of full.
Engine start attempted and throttle not correctly setAdvice that throttle should be open about 1/4 inch when starting.
Engine start attempted and parking brake not setWarning that parking brake must be set when starting the engine.
Engine start attempted with master battery switch offAdvice that the master battery switch must be on when starting the engine.
Engine start attempted with fuel pump offAdvice that the fuel pump must be on when starting the engine.
Engine start attempted with fuel shut offAdvice that the fuel shut off must be pushed in so that fuel is not cut off when starting the engine.
Shortly after moving in taxi modeAdvice on which instruments and systems should be checked during taxiing.
In takeoff mode with more than 10 degrees of flapsWarning that you have too much flaps set and that you should use no more than 10 degrees.
In takeoff mode and on ground with autopilot onWarning that autopilot must be off during takeoff.
Shortly after beginning takeoffAdvice to move throttle smoothly up to full.
Shortly after beginning takeoffAdvice that the nose wheel can be lifted at 55 KIAS.
Shortly after takeoffReminder that this aircraft's 'vX' (Best Angle of Climb Speed) is 62 KIAS at sea level. Use this speed to clear runway obstacles or to lift off from a soft field quickly.
Shortly after takeoffReminder that this aircraft's 'vY' (Best Rate of Climb Speed) is 74 KIAS at sea level. Use this speed to climb after takeoff in normal operations.
Shortly after takeoffReminder that in this aircraft you should normally turn with a 20 degree bank and when doing so you will want to rollout about 20 degrees before your desired heading.
Shortly after takeoffAdvice that if you encounter heavy turbulence you need to be at or below manoeuvring speed ('vA') and to remember that this will decrease as you burn fuel.
Shortly after takeoffAdvice to use right rudder to correct for any unwanted yawing to the left caused by P factor and torque.
Entering cruise modeAdvice to cruise between 2100 and 2700 RPM and to lean the mixture above 3000 feet MSL to obtain maximum RPM.
Descent and Landing
Descending and below maximum flap speed while landingAdvice that once below 110 KIAS the pilot may use 10 degrees of flaps.
Advice that once below 85 KIAS the pilot may use more than 10 degrees (15 to 30 degrees) of flaps.
